Does anyone know the shutter angle of this cam?
It's 180 degree shutter.
I've got an Aaton LTR54 and it's just like every other Aaton Camera
(Actually the XTRProd has an adjustable shutter but it's usually at 180 degrees)
Why would you think it is otherwise?
Most S16 cameras have 180 degree shutters
Except for the Eclair ACL which has a strange occilating shutter...
(Some CP16 cameras have a bowtie shutter
But when you add that together it's still 180 degrees)
Anyways like other people said
You don't have to worry about overexposing or underexposing 7218
If it's by less than a stop.
Eitherways you're footage will be fine so relax.

Cinematographers have found the Kodak VISION2 to have tremendous latitude. Even with one stop underexposure, you'd only see a slight loss of shadow detail. It would take several stops of overexposure to even begin to see any adverse effect on highlight detail.
I worked on a feature a couple of months ago where we shot 5274 and 5218 and exposed everything 2 stops under. It's going through a DI, but the dailies held up pretty well. Some of it was pretty dark (too dark in my opinion), but they should be able to bring up what they need to in the DI. When we first started I was pretty scared about underexposing that much (not my choice of course as I was the operator), but both stocks held up very well and I liked the look. I like deep blacks and high contrast though, so others may not like it as much as me.
